The University Library of Wuppertal is a central service institution of University of Wuppertal in Wuppertal, Germany. The main building at main campus Grifflenberg holds five special libraries while both sub campuses Haspel and Freudenberg hold one special library each.
The library was founded in 1972, the same year the university was founded. It united the former libraries of Pedagogic College Rhineland and College of Wuppertal. In March 2012 a new reading room was opened and included 200 new study desks, a range of internet stations and three lockable rotundas with working stations for groups. The whole room was part of the 2013 Day of Architecture in North Rhine-Westphalia. In December 2013 the library received a large private donation from the family of Mario Puelma that involved thousands of books.
